JOFY plate 12

The simplest looking cards often take the longest time.

Today I have created a "one layer" card…using the JOFY 12 plate, available here..

I wanted to create the illusion of a frame around my card so I masked off the edges using post-it notes.  I then stamped the large three headed image from the JOFY plate directly onto the card, stamping it again onto a masking sheet.  Then the painstaking bit, cut out the mask carefully, the more definition you get on the mask the clearer your image.  I then placed the mask over the stamped image on the card.  Using Tumbled glass distress ink and the lovely new round distress ink tools, I added colour to the background…adding broken china around the edges to add some depth.  using a large text stamp I text the background with broken china - I then removed the mask and posits - Wish was then stamped with versafine ink.
